So, I am a self-proclaimed organized person. But I haven’t truly been that organized over the last few years. If I had, my house wouldn’t have gotten so allergy ridden. I would have not accumulated as much crap as I have and I would be in better financial shape. But I am not perfect, so I have given myself a bit of a break. Because, I work and I am a mom and I have a life. But since I have been sick. Oh. My. Gosh. I am literally thinking every second of every day all the things that I have to do now. I don’t know if I have had too many meds or not enough sleep, or if I am just long overdue to simplify my life.
So since right before this asthma crap, I started getting rid of duplicate pics and cd’s I haven’t played in 15 years, and dvd’s that we didn’t buy that someone gave to us that we don’t care about and that is the tip of the iceberg. I got rid of people on Facebook that I don’t interact with and vcvs because that is a very private site for me about my family, so I iced about 20 people this week. On my Insta, I had about 700 people who followed me that were ghost followers or creepers or non-posters. I ditched them. I think for so long, I was just plodding along weighted down by so many things and people and situations.
Now, I am trying to free myself from the unnecessary. A lot of it has to do with people on social media too. There is a big influencer for me on Insta, who has revolutionized her life, literally. She left a bad relationship, turned her financial self around and she is a convicted felon! She is making close to 7 figures, and a lot of it is because she has re-organized her life and prioritized God and herself and her child and what is really important. She has freed herself from too many material items and useless and pointless relationships. She has improved her credit, her future and her mindset. And I am on the road right behind her…
I am hyper-foucsed on fixing my credit woes that happened after marrying an irresponsible man. I want to start really contributing to my Roth because I have not done that enough. And I am not just saying that I will do these things, I have made steps already. I started a Lender program that allows me to build my credit and I can cash out the money in 12 months while showing credit stability and I am making a deposit towards my retirement at my credit union on Friday. So as much as social media and all of these different mediums of communication can be a real hindrance at times, it can be really beneficial seeing people do things that motivate us to live better.
One of the biggest things that I am excited about is that I am forming a LLC for my creative endeavors. Anything that I do can artistically can fall legally under that umbrella and I am getting a UPS box this week so that I can register under a physical address other than my own. I am making lists, checking them off, getting my ish together and it feels so good! When I do get married again one day in the future, my life will be on point! I may have this ginormous student loan looming for life, but everything else will be on point and I can say that with that, I will truly feel accomplished and like I am living my best life! Live yours too, we all only have one chance!
